Avoid Toxins

Toxins can and do negatively affect every part of the body. Toxic effects on the brain include poor memory and concentration, erratic behavior, word confusion, mood issues, headaches, vertigo, and cravings. Toxic brain exposures, as from alcohol abuse, are also linked to accelerated mental decline.

There are simple ways to avoid many toxins and, fortunately, the human body is designed to detox itself.

1. Detox Your Diet: Buy organic, and always wash your food

2. Clean Up Your Diet: Limit or eliminate non-organic produce (herbicides and pesticides) dairy (hormones and antibiotics), feedlot meats (hormones and antibiotics), and farmed fish (junk-fed and PCBs). Increase your fiber consumption

3. Eliminate Processed Foods: Remove as much as possible of processed foods and sugar from your diet.

4. Eat More Brassicas: Brassicas, like collard greens, kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, provide unique nutrients (phytonutrients) that rev up your detoxification system.

5. Drink More Water: Your brain is 80% water, so avoid anything that dehydrates it—such as caffeine or alcohol. Being dehydrated by just 2% impairs performance in tasks that require attention, immediate memory skills, and physical performance.

6. Toss Toxic Cleaners: Do a bathroom cleanse and throw out all toxic products.

7. Take Vitamin C, Curcumins, Other Antioxidants Daily
